to get power back on for your customers? >> first thing, we have 3.2 million customers in new york city. that's the five boroughs in westchester county. 650,000 of those customers are out of service. so, the last few days, we've been warning your viewers that to be prepared and to also be patient. this is a storm that's still in the process of happening. it's pretty dynamic and those numbers could easily go up. what we're warning them, as we say, we have to go through an assessment process first, to figure out what is actually wrong with the equipment, set out about making the repairs and we have to do it in a safe way. we cannot allow our employees to be out if the winds are still surging and the bucket trucks we can't have them up in the air if wind surges are still strong. we have to have safety first. once we do that, the crews will be augmented by crews we've contacted from around the country to assist us as they are assisting other utilities along the eastern seaboard because of this storm. >> deidre with con edison, a long week for your workers. so many people sitting in the dark
saying new york city is the capital of the world in a lot of ways. the markets here closed down by choice for the first time since september 11th, 2001. when did you know how bad it would be? >> i'm sorry. what? >> when did you know -- >> i think last week, there was a lot of talk about preparation for this storm. lots of things were inspected, for instance, cranes were inspe inspected. obviously, so earlier today, something that was unanticipated and a lot of preparation. i believe this city has done everything they could reasonably have done, but mother nature is mother nature. you know, we're still going to feel significant effects. >> let me ask you about that crane because i could see it outside today before i came down here. how did that crane end up in that situation? was there a way to hold it down? and how many people are at risk? it's just dangling there. it seems like it could cause a lot of loss of life. >> it's really unknown as to how the crane got to where it was. it really tipped over, the boon tipped over, but the whole area has been evacuated and cleared. we know traffic
, will be fully done by tomorrow. >> and this isn't the only new york city hospital forced to evacua evacuate. i remember monday night lanagain to medical center had to evacuate patients. the first question is do you have enough hospital beds for all these people and secondly was it that you didn't foresee the magnitude of this storm, that the hospitals weren't prepared or that the hospitals could never be prepared for this sort of event and this is what's going to happen if a storm like this comes again? >> well this was an unprecedented event. we weathered hurricane irene 14 or 15 months ago with the same emergency preparations and it didn't come close to endangering the hospital. this hospital sits 20 feet above sea level, we're actually 15 feet higher than nyu hospital next door because the terrain rises slightly here, so it was obviously not anticipated that we would get a storm surge of this magnitude, the national hurricane center was predicting even at its highest 11-foot storm surge, so clearly here out of the east river, just because of the way the waters were being pushed and the leve
